190 Serpentine Road Mount Melville 6330 WA
THE TIME CAPSULE
Unlock a setting of an era gone by as you step into this older style cottage- a giant sized time capsule. It is a home that time forgot, displaying vintage wares of comfort, homeliness and a touch of character style.
Its sturdiness and spaciousness makes is a great base in which to take inspiration from those vintage finds and fuse with modern new refurbishments to create the perfect family home.
Located on the hillside of Mount Melville, the home is graced with uninterrupted views over the lights of town and beyond to the Porongurup's.
It's neatly kept front yard features painted concrete pathways, tiered lawns, spots of foliage and floral displays and a shaded portico to the front entrance.
Stepping inside, the entrance hall displays the first of the character features, with high ceilings and decorative cornices making a stylish refurbishment as easy as a lick of fresh paint and new floor coverings, perhaps sleek carpet or timber.
To the right is the first of the bedrooms, a huge king sized room with older style cream shag carpet, recessed storage area, high ceiling with decorative rose and cornices all amongst pink walls, white venetians and lace drapes. Across the way is a second character bedroom, the same size but this time with neutral colours and cream carpet.
Like the entrance space, both rooms are just a new paint job and floor refurbishment away from being absolutely spectacular.
A central hub of the home, the generous formal lounge room is the next port of call. It features its own fireplace with brick surrounds and a wood mantle place, large windows, wall mounted feature lighting and the same character ceilings as the front section of the home.
A third king sized bedroom leads from the lounge room and features double French doors joining the fourth bedroom.
The 50's style kitchen and dining area is old school but generous, the central dining area surrounded by multiple stretches of whitewashed cabinets, overhead glass front displays, marble green bench tops and splashbacks. A hint of the hearty cookery that has occurred within these walls, the kitchen also features not one but two upright ovens and stovetops (one gas and one electric) recessed into the mantle as well as a dishwasher.
A huge window over the sink overlooks the view and allows you to ponder what enviable extensions you might add to the home to create the perfect outdoor entertaining setup.
Another doorway leads to the interestingly designed walkways that make up the rest of the home. They introduce an open sunroom section with tucked away linen closet, older style bathroom with shower, floating storage vanity and toilet amongst charcoal floor tiles, and finally steps down to a huge games room or studio which would be perfect to renovate and create amazing guest accommodation.
Outside, the paved courtyard is just begging for a spritely new patio installation to allow entertaining overlooking the view.
The remainder of the yard stretches out and features an older style garage and workshop, garden shed and bird aviary.
Even the yard itself is rich with opportunity, its hefty 1108 sqm size ripe for sub division to create a second sought after house in this fantastic location.
Unlock the time capsule and welcome it into the 21st century.
